Cage Talk: Inside the World's Toughest Sport
When the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) first debuted many people criticised the brutality presented by having two men engage in no holds barred fist fighting. The UFC sparked a revolution in combat sports and has become a worldwide phenomenon to the point where it’s pushed Boxing out as the top fighting sport in the U.S. In the U.S and Japan Cage fighting has climbed to celestial heights because of regular crowd attendance in excess of 20, 000 to 100,000.
On 30th December 2006 the UFC broke the pay per-view industry records and garnered 1 million 50 000 buys surpassing both WWE wrestling and Boxing. With over 3OO million fans in over 170 countries with its abundance of high profile fighters there are no signs that Cage Fighting will slow its meteoric rise.
In this fascinating new and gripping book the author delves not only the glory of this fast growing and dangerous sport but all the chaos that goes behind the scenes and the life styles of the herculean super star fighters. Included are gritting insider accounts of some of the legendary major fights. You will discover the type of mental and physical commitment it takes to survive in the Cage. Using EXCLUSIVE interviews conducted specifically for this book, the author has produced a very real look at the MM scene which has grown in popularity.
